Editorial Reviews

"To find the secret of his success, you have to compare King to Twain and Poe-  King's stories tap the roots of myth buried in all our minds."-Los Angeles Times

"Buy Different Seasons. I promise you'll enjoy it….He creates people who are so alive, you can almost sense them."-Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"The wondrous readability of his work, as well as the instant sense of communication with his characters, are what make King the consummate storyteller that he is."-Houston Chronicle

"Hypnotic."-The New York Times Book Review

Appropriate for ages: 18 - 18
